Mission Statement

The Save Ancient Studies Alliance mission is to reverse the current downward trend in the study of Ancient Studies (AS). Unchecked, this trend will lead to the abandonment of AS at colleges and universities across the USA within the next 30 years, except for some few elite and religious schools. However, there is immense value in AS, particularly as a gateway to empathetic understanding of other cultures and people, past and present. By building a grassroots movement emphasizing outreach, collaboration, accessibility, and public scholarship, we are inspiring an inclusive, flourishing community of learners and students. This will Save Ancient Studies.

Description

SASA targets individuals of all ages interested in the field of Ancient Studies and seeks to enable them to pursue their dreams and passions, no matter what their background is. We seek to bring together professionals, amateurs, students, and unaffiliated members of the wider public to gain a greater appreciation and understanding of the ancient world and its pervasive influence on the present.

To accomplish our mission, our planned and ongoing projects for the next year include the following: Raising awareness of AS among high school and undergraduate students through our social media effort "Inspire Campaign"; Providing online content and tools to enable easier access to formal and informal study of the ancient world through our Live Events and Reading Groups; Developing a re-imagined, inclusive scholarly community by providing access to knowledge and learning for under-privileged groups through our Access Database and Virtual Conference; Recruiting AS students, professionals, and enthusiasts as collaborators.
